Plane problems in Japan - level 1

Plane problems in Japan - level 1

Japanese bosses are very sorry. Their plane had a big problem. Their plane turned 140°. Then the plane went down 2 kilometres. The pilot made a mistake.

The problem was on September 6th. But Japanese bosses didn’t speak about it. They spoke about it later. They spoke about it on Wednesday last week.

The bosses say that it is true. They are very sorry because they gave only little information about the problem.

The people on the plane were OK because gravitation was very strong. And they sat during the problem. Only two flight attendants had some problems.
